E100-46: Isaiah 51:1 -€“ 53:12: Reading prophets for pleasure and profit




I have not focused these 5 Minutes on how Is 53 speaks so clearly about Jesus, it is the Old Testament passage that is most clearly, directly and simply fulfilled in Christ. But that status should not make it paradigmatic for undedrstanding how Jesus fulfills Scripture. For more on that (and there is nothing on that in this podcast :( see What DOES "fulfil" mean? And other podcasts on this topic here.

Instead in this audio talk I want to focus on reading the prophets. The prophets are problematic today, in part because Christians sometimes make them seem more like Nostradamus than Nathan, but even more because these books do fit Yancey's friend's description: "weird, confusing and all sound alike". In these five minutes I'll mention two key tools background ("context") and hearing the "voices".
